For the first wedding of 2016, I couldn’t resist sharing this rustic chic Christmas time wedding from Molly Jo Collection. I love how this couple did their nod to holiday season, while still keeping it elegant and personalized to them. How gorgeous is the bride and her bridesmaids with their lace gowns and high buns?
Both John and I agreed we wanted to get married in “a lodge” type setting, it suited us and our outdoorsy/ pretty image for the setting of our wedding. My parents suggested we check out Woodfire lodge. We visited after Christmas 2014 and knew upon entering that was the place we would get married. We got engaged on 12/5/14 and decided, a winter wedding at a lodge one year from our engagement would be perfect.
My Aunt Sharon offered to make my hair piece- I sent her a picture of my dress and a hair piece I liked and she made the most beautiful hair piece for me. I also wore my grandma’s ring- my grandpa gave it to her for her 25th wedding anniversary and all the granddaughters borrow it and wear it on their wedding day.
People have lots of input and opinions- we felt it was most important to keep our wedding day true to us and to who we are as a couple and make the day about celebrating!
We wanted it to be simple, wintery, and bring out the holiday spirit! was so nervous in the morning about how all this planning was going to come together, but once I arrived at the venue I felt better, the wedding ceremony flew buy but was so fun, light and perfect.
It’s hard to have a favorite part, the setting was beautiful, comfortable, we were surrounded by all of our favorite people as we celebrated becoming husband and wife.
